In Year 1 we have been appraising nursery rhymes with a focus on where they originated from. Last week we looked at the song ‘Hot Cross Buns’. We discovered the song was more than 300 years old and was used by bakers to help sell their delicious buns. We performed our song in a round. At first we found this extremely tricky as we would sing each other’s parts. As a result, for this week Miss Dale sang one part and the children sang the other. Here was the final outcome.
This week we were determined to keep practicing singing in a round. We appraised another traditional nursery rhyme ‘Row, row, row your boat’. We then looked at more additions to the song that have been invented over the years. We agreed our favourite was the crocodile one so we decided to perform this in a round and WE DID IT! So proud Year 1, well done!
